Finally, after almost two years work, my text on french photographer Sophie Calle is ready to publish. I was happy to find out that she was the winner of this years Hasselblad award.

Details in Sophie Calles artwork is an investigation where the starting point is Suite vénitienne, one of the French artist, storyteller and photographer Sophie Calles early projects, dated back to 1979. Suite vénitienne was first published as a book in 1980, accompanied by a text by philosopher Jean Baudrillard, Please follow me. Finding keys to the artwork of Sophie Calle I have been guided by the concept of details as in Roland Barthes description of punctum, the detail in the picture that hits you like an arrow, the detail that seeks your subconscious. Sophie Calle often uses photography together with text to create her stories, and here the focus lies on essential details in her pictures, her words and in her narration. The twelve chapters; Traces, Shadows, Alter Ego, The Gaze, Mirrors, Studium, Punctum, Versions, Visibility, The lie, Puzzles, Seduction, include details that are examined from different perspectives, where as the chapters, like in a film script, has been carefully arranged to follow their own narrative logic. By conversing with philosophers, scholars, feminists, writers and novelists like Duras and Auster the aim has been to create several different kinds of understandings of Sophie Calles artwork, to strive towards quite a scattered full view of the picture.
